LEXINGTON, Ky. - Kyle Wiltjer wanted the ball against Tennessee Tuesday and let his head coach know.

Following Kentucky's 75-65 win over the Volunteers, John Calipari said, "You know what's great about Kyle, for the first time since he's been here, he told me to run a play for him, which I absolutely did.  Because the minute a young man comes to you and says, 'Coach, run four down,' you run it, because now it's off me and it's on him.
   
"So I always will do it.  And he even came back after he made that shot, came back and said, run another play for him, and we did, and then we came back on the third one, I said, cool out, man, come on, let somebody else try to shoot it."
